Maranta leuconeura var. kerchoveana
Often referred to as Prayer Plants, along with their closely related cousins Calathea, Maranta leaves have the unusual characteristic of lying flat during the day and then closing upwards at night as if in prayer. You may already have the Maranta Leuconeura with the pink veins on the leaves, but this beautiful one would be a great addition to your collection!
